Universal Music has just upgraded Rebecca Allen from managing director to President of Decca UK.

Becks, who started out 17 years ago on the label’s press desk, has enjoyed a stunning run of recent success: Top 10 albums in quick succession with Ball & Boe, Dame Vera Lynn and Imelda May. Ball & Boe’s Together is now double platinum after becoming the UK’s Christmas number one album following its release in November 2016.

She runs like the wind, so long as it’s for charity.

What’s more, she says she has only just got started…

Go, Becks!
